Subject: Amazing
Petrillo's rip-off / impression of Jerry Lewis is jaw-dropping, as is the awful gorilla costume. Lugosi was deep in morphine addiction by this point, but it is said he did the best he could with the two leads goofing around.

Subject: What a rip off
Jeez, what a rip off of Martin and Lewis. I wonder how much morphine Lugosi had to use just to speak in this waste of celluloid?

Subject: Ha Ha! Bela Lugosi!
Pretty wild trailer for all the wrong reasons. Bela Lugosi gets his name in a movie title so he mustve been proud of that, but the real big thing about this one of course, is Duke Mitchell and Sammy Patrillo playing, not officially mind you, Martin and Lewis. There have been a number people who have said that Duke Mitchells Martin is no big deal, but Sammy Patrillo is incredible. And yes, that DOES show in the trailer. Lewis sued him for it, and rightly so, because this is more than an imitation. So this trailer is quite watchable for that alone.

Subject: What Is This Film, Stupid? Don't Answer That!
Fairly entertaining trailer for the really stupid movie Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla, starring those lovable Martin & Lewis ripoffs, Duke Mitchell and Sammy Petrillo, plus Lugosi and a guy in a gorilla suit. With this trailer, you get all the mildly entertaining parts of the movie, while getting to skip the boring and excruciatingly stupid parts. Making it better than the movie. This is one of the better reasons movie trailers should be preserved.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.

Subject: Does Its Job
Well, this trailer certainly did its job -- it made me consider actually watching Bela Lugosi Meets the Brooklyn Gorilla! I haven't followed through yet, but I will one of these days. It's interesting to note how alarmingly similar Sammy Petrillo's performance (and appearance) is to Jerry Lewis. If I remember correctly, there was some kind of legal trouble between the two parties because of it. Anyway, as far as trailers go, this one's in a pretty good condition, and, like I said, the content itself was enough to at least pique some interest in the movie -- Bela Lugosi fan or otherwise.
